AllThingsD
and LoopInsight report that Apple is planning to hold a media event on Tuesday, October 23 to introduce Apple’s 7.85 inches “iPad mini”.

As AllThingsD reported in August, Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on October 23 at an invitation-only event.

That’s a Tuesday, not a Wednesday, so this is a bit of a break with recent tradition. It also happens to be just three days prior to the street date for Microsoft’s new Surface tablet.

The location of the event is unconfirmed, but will most likely be held at the Town Hall auditorium at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. » Rumor: Apple’s iPad Mini Media Event Scheduled For October 23
